Re: “FEATURE ‌ Judgment Day

One name can bring down that entire argument... Madden. Or does this year's version include alien invasions (a long over due expansion of the franchise)? The gaming industry is one that defies pop culture. It is an industry that watched the regulation and ratings of music, movies, and even television, and said, "No, thanks. We got it." Thus you have the ESRB. So why should the critics be different? Gaming is not the same as watching a movie. One can not break it down to social contexts and paint a tapestry of words about collecting coins. They are games. To give them more credit would only increase the political pressure on the industry, and make a joke out of the fact that we all live to be Italian plumbers engaged in an epic battle against a lizard/dragon/dinosaur wearing a crown. So yes, I play Halo to feed the need to shoot aliens, but I don't try and give it vindication. Freud said sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. So why can't a Covenant Elite just be a damn, dirty, alien invader with a needler?
